Time really flies by doesn’t it? I have been working a memory quilt for our Son and Daughter In Law. A few weeks ago they had to put their dog down; it was real hard for them as anyone with pets know about that. Here is a photo of the quilt top for them. Now I need to square it up and quilt it. … Continue reading What happen to the week?
Went to the KC Regional Quilt Festival and saw so many quilts. So many ideas, SO MUCH TALENT, and so many vendors. Took us 4 hours of no stop walking (Hubby was in so much back pain by time we stopped). But it was wonderful. Hopefully next year I can manage to take some of the classes. I know I will buy tickets for 2 … Continue reading Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival

I have been making microwave bowl cozies for quite a while now and have decided to remake them into different sizes. Today’s size is 15×10 inches.

I have been thinking a lot of the first few quilts I made. I thought here I have been sewing all my life, so what is the big deal about quilting? The first quilt was just alternating squares and I embroidered randomly on it. Easy….Hahaha. I learned the lesson of NEVER say “easy peasy”. My next quilt was for my son. I went to the … Continue reading Throw back Thursday

I am not sure what I loved the most, the fabrics and … Continue reading 5 Great Quilt Shops We Visited On Vacation
We have been trying to get everything finished up for the sale Saturday. I have only a few more things to finish up and then will be done. I am assuming most of you know about Missouri Star Quilts and Jenny Doan. I have been working on her Cathedral Window block. Makes it so easy and without hand stitching. It can be a quilt as … Continue reading Craft Fair Saturday
What a beautiful day it has been. Nice and sunny in the low 80’s and butterflies are all over my yard. No, not just my garden, but in my quilts also. A few years ago I was involved in a block swap and loved it. We all made 11 butterfly blocks and then swapped them. I made this wonderful quilt and have decided to revisit … Continue reading Butterflies in the Garden
